About me

Who am I and what do I offer?

I am an experienced UKCP accredited and registered gestalt psychotherapist, with an MA in Gestalt Therapy. I work with individuals, couples and groups.

I am based in Nether Edge in Sheffield, S7, and I offer both short-term and long-term psychotherapy and counselling.

Who do I work with?

In my private practice I offer therapy for a wide range of issues, and have worked with adult individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds. I have experience of working with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, relationship problems, issues around parenting, post natal depression, sexual and physical abuse, bullying, loneliness, low self-esteem, cultural related issues, career problems, family dynamics, sexuality and eating disorders.

I am an approved provider with the WPA Health Insurance scheme and the Vitality Health Insurance scheme.

Working with Groups:

Alongside my work with individuals and couples, I also work with groups, often co-facilitating with my colleague, Faisal Mahmood. For more information please go to www.gestaltgroups.co.uk.
